Fax Console Requires Refresh

Post by Y3Rj » Wed, 24 Aug 2005 11:49:02


I am using microsoft fax with outlook xp.

The fax console has just started requiring a refresh after each new fax is
received before it will show it in the inbox.

This was not always the case.

How do I reconfigure it to always show new faxes without refreshing once
again?

Try archiving to a new folder.

There is no use of the term "archive" in my version of the Fax Configuration
Wizard.

When you write "archive(ing)", do you mean "store a copy in a folder" under
Routing Options in the Fax Configuration Wizard?

No.
Faxes you have received are automatically archived in the Fax Console's
Inbox and faxes you have sent are archived in the Fax Console's Sent Items
Folder. You can easily access these folders from Windows Explorer. The
default location of these folders is:

<drive>:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows
NT\MSFax\



I'm suggesting you create a new archive folder (your current one may be
full), then set the Fax Console to store received faxes in the new folder.
This option is very easy to find in the Fax Console's options.

I meant, "Yes" with the rest of the explanation that followed.
